"A hero's humility"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Written in a conversation style, this reluctant hero glossed over the excessive rigors of his training and of his suffering on the battlefield to tell stories of his being in the right place at the right time to defend his comrades in arms from a fanatical, often drugged enemy … as well as how his devotion to duty nearly cost him his family (with timely comments from his wife frequently injected). While touching at times and humourous at times, it also told of the horrors of war. In short, it was a great read! I look forward to seeing the movie.

Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle, and the source for Clint Eastwood's blockbuster movie which was nominated for six academy awards, including best picture. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him "The Legend"; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war-including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates-and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle's masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.
